Why Jan Wlodyka and George Wlodyka chose Ayamonte

We bought this property because of the location to the beach and also proximity to Portugal as well as Spain. We always wanted somewhere for all of our family to enjoy holidays. We have 3 children and now 2 grandchildren and we just love to all meet up there when we can. The views really do have to be seen to be believed. Traditional Spanish Town Ayamonte with wonderful fresh and local produce.

What makes this apartment unique

The lovely Spanish lifestyle and traditional family values.

The huge terrace with hot tub is sheer luxury and the al fresco lifestyle we adopt when we arrive is unique

The beach on our doorstep. Great little beach bars and restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Jan

We have returned from a fabulous week at your stunning penthouse. We would definitely love to come back. I thought you might like to hear how it went.


Hi Mandy

I'm so pleased you had a good holiday.

We have just arrived at the apartment after a week in Portugal for my daughters wedding.

We are going to rest up and watch the world go by from the terrace.

I look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Kind regards

Living outdoors is a celebration of the ultimate goal of an alfresco lifestyle - eating, cooking and bathing all seem more exotic and exciting in the open air. so come and enjoy this very private experience. The patio doors to the terrace are ajar; a table and chairs have been set up with little attention to orderly arrangement. A bottle of wine - open of course - glasses, bread, olives and freshly cooked clams complete the foreground to this captivating scene. Beyond the terrace the unexpected view opens out: the open sea with the fishermen at work all clothed in a light heat haze, the magnificence of the views towards the estuary incorporating the quiet fishing village. Cooking alfresco with the flamingoes beyond in the wetlands. How cool! - the ultimate room. This magnificent terrace incorporates its own private hot tub, which is surrounded by wonderful gardens including a lemon tree and herb garden. Complete with wysteria, bougainvillea, grapevines, olive tree and palm trees.

Stunning apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time in the apartment. The facilities throughout were excellent. It was very clean on arrival and any small problems were immediately rectified. Isla Canela is beautiful and we loved the beach chiringuitos especially La Sonrisa - which Jan kindly recommended and booked for our daughters birthday. I can't not mention the terrace - just wow! So much room - we loved just trying every seat for a different view each time. Cooking outside was a real treat. Loved, loved, loved it! Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.

Fantastic apartment with a stunning terrace and views

  • 5 of 5

The island of Isla Canela is beautiful as is the whole region of Huelva and the apartment is situated in a position that allows you to get a panoramic view of the whole area. The main apartment building is accessed via electronic gates and is beautifully maintained and includes an underground parking space.

Once you get to the 5th floor via the lifts and open the apartment door you immediately know that this is going to be something special. The inside is very welcoming and is beautifully decorated and appointed.

You are met with views out to sea through the glass patio doors that lead out from the kitchen to the terrace and it is the terrace that is truly jaw dropping. The size of the terrace is what unbelievable but it is the views that take your breath away, it really is something special. The terrace has everything you could need and has a lovely feel to it, it is a fantastic space to eat in and enjoy and really makes this an unforgettable place.

It has great bars and restaurants in the area and it is very much the authentic Spain. The marina area is lovely as is the village of Isla Canela, I really cant say enough about it!!

A special thanks also to Natalie and Colin who met us when we arrived and were so helpful with information and explanation of the apartment. They were also just a call away if there was anything we needed during the stay.

This is a place I would definitely go back to and the apartment I think is the best you will find.

Lastly i would like to thank Jan, the owner, who was also really helpful in the lead up and came back almost immediately with help and information.

I will certainly be back.

On the Spanish Algarve, close to excellent golf courses. Within reach of Portugese Algarve and Seville. Great base to explore the southern coast of both Spain and Portugal together with magnificent accomodation set in the peaceful beauty of Isla Canela. A special experience.

Golf: Some superb golf courses are found in the immediate area. The penthouse is some twenty minutes from the new prestigious Jack Nicklaus signature golf and country club at Monte Rei. The club is being marketed as one of the finest international golf courses in Europe. Close by is another superb golf course designed by Seve Ballesteros, at Quinta de Vale. The course opens to the public in October 2007 and is a stunning course. The island of Isla Canela has its own golf course, its an ideal course to start your holiday and a challenge to golfers at all levels. Other excellent courses in the locality include El Rompido, Neuvo Porto in Spain and across the bridge in Portugal there are the further courses of Quinta da Ria, Quinta de Cima and Castro Marim. We work closely with Links Golf in the marina at Punta del Moral to provide golf packages to suit your personal requirements, so let us know your preferred itinerary and we shall work to achieve your needs at best prices.
